This site is about Shortwave Radio Listening by wannabee Hams
I started with a simple crystal set, and then increased knowledge complexity and power in steps.
Later on I picked up a Zenith TransOceanic, it was given to me as I recall from a friend.
I still have one today, picked up from an antique store for 50 dollars.
It needs some attention, perhaps a few capacitors in the ac to dc circuits, since there is a 60 hz buzz in the audio.
The radio I use now is a Radio Shack All Band Receiver.
This is all notion based at the moment, as I have not investigated as to whether one might get voltage to capacitance conversion elements, which would be useful for the early phases of my experimentation.
